Hey fellas, I know I have't been around in quite some time but I am now back up and running. This is my own thread where you can ask me anything you want- whether it be about training, diet, nutrition, supplements, or just the iron lifestyle- and I will answer you to the best of my ability. Like the title of the thread says "Doing The Work Since '83" and I will continue to do so here for all of my fellow Animals out there. I will also be running the promos that you all love from time to time on the Forvm. If you have any suggestions, let me know. Until then stay tuned....

I have been involved with Animal since I was a young teen. I met up with them through a close personal freind, and then I took some actions to become a part of this great family. I work in a gym as a trainer. My life is eating, sleeping, training, and growing.

Hey A-Rep I have an off-season dieting/training question. Usually every 2 months in the off-season I take a week off of training just to give my body a rest and get some of my intensity back. I was wondering if during this period I should still follow my 7 day a meal plan and eat normally or if I should cut back on it because of me not hitting the iron for a week? Thanks bro.

I have to say, it was the most "interesting" show I've ever been in, or seen... *LOL* I only took 5th, out of 6 people... But the way they did it confused the heck out of me... We did our quarter turns, first... Then filed off stage, and we each went up and did 60 seconds of "free posing" to some slow twangy country music, individually... Then, we went back up onstage, together, and did our mandatories... Just different... However, I do feel that this was the best I've been, to date, and Rage already has me back at it... I'll be doing 2 shows, next year... Also, if ya get bored... I've been playing "Mad Scientist" with a rebound stack, and am logging it...

hey brother,
i am new to the forum but am starting to get the hang of it. tons of great info here if you take the time and start reading through stuff. here is my deal; i have started lifting again seriously now for abou a year. i am seeing great results in my body but my pecs are still lacking. i really havent lifted much since high school so i know i had alot of time to make up. im not a huge guy bout 5'10" 200lbs and i still am having a hard time with bench. for example today was chest day and i did flat bench 135 10rep, 135 10 rep, 185 8rep, 185 6rep, 195 4rep and 205 3. i just cant seem to get above 200 much and i get discoraged because i feel like i should be throwing it up there. i then moved on to incline bench, decline bench cable cross incline dumbells and the pec deck. then moved on and toasted my tri's. what would u suggest as far as helping my bench?

Animal Rep
06-16-09, 3:46 pm
Welcome my man. I would say get away from flat bench as your first exercise. Start with Incline presses, and do other things, and save flat for last, if at all. Keep your reps high for a while, there is no need to go down to 3 every single time. Do drop sets as well as negatives. Keep changing it up as Chest is the hardest to grow in size and strength.

Sadly, i dont live in the lap of luxury. Constantly on the grind, always looking to fill my plate up with something better, all the while sharing the knowledge for the youth. Days are usually much like everyone else .. Sleep, eat, work, train. I gotta constantly be on the move in order to get to where I want to go .. Every day is an up hill battle, my brother. Keep fighting.

Too many mother fuckers are scared to face their fears. Face what is good in life, and face what could potentially be bad. You can not stand up for what is right if you are scared and sit hiding in the corner of a dirty dilapidated bathroom, blood coming from your hands because you can't stand up. Beaten down, forced to face your maker in the eyes. Everyone has been there. No one wants to stay there. What will you do to get up and fight?
